      How to create an @mention - Click Here   07/16/2015

      You can use the @mention aspect whenever you want someone to be notified about a post or let them know you are talking about them. Type the @ symbol type in a couple "lowercase" letters pause then once the names pop-up either select or keep typing in letters to narrow down the list until you get the @mention name you are looking for. You can play a game so members can see how it works. If you want to practice or If your name has been @mentioned below you should see it in your notifications (upper right) and you then have to @mention one or two members who haven't been mentioned inthe comments section below. Let's see how long we can keep this going. Anyone who duplicates a name that has already been @mentioned loses. This is the first group to be @mentioned to get the ball rolling: @Borch @Scott K @Corey Bechtold @Matt Johnson @mrklean @eyeguy 54 @Finns @IceHawk @MarkB @Cliff Wagenbach @Wayne Ek

Recommended Posts

I keep breaking my mr.heater sunflower in transport while it is in my team wild 3 man. what do you do to keep it intact/ I have my auger in the sleigh with all my gear, any suggestions or pictures would be appreciated. Do you take your heater off of the tank?

I too use the milk crate for the tank. I remove my heater and after cooling, secure it inside of a pail with a few other things. I have also found that it is a good idea to always carry an extra thermocouple with you, just in case.

Where do you get the thermocouples at? I went to a local hardware store and Lowes and the ones they had didn't fit my sunflower, so I bought a Little Buddy which isn't as nice as my Sunflower was.

I take my heater off everytime...and store it in the box it came in...which i wrapped duct taped around to make it weather proof box (duct tape fixes everything). Kind of a pain I guess but I got sick of breaking parts and replacing heaters. The milk crate idea sounds good...I may have to try that.

I put mine in a milk crate. In the house (3 man clam voyegeur) I set it in the corner to blow diagnolly across the house. I took a 2x2 and made a U bracket that fits down into the corner of the milk crate behind the tank. It is approx 4" higher than than the sunflower and keeps the canvas from hitting the hot sunflower and burning a hole in the canvas if its a bit windy. You can remove the U bracket assembly and lay it in the bottome of the sled if needed to put the travel cover on. Works good no more burns in the canvas either. Bill

I carry my tank in a havy duty milk crate and keep the cooled down heater head in a 5 gallon pail wrapped in a couple fish towels. Or I toss it in my Sportsmans Caddy made by Otter in my Otter Lodge. Great storage unit.

Where is your auger? My auger takes up the most room in my wild 3 man sled. I decided to just remove the head and store in my storage box on my snowmachine. Less hassle and keep it from getting destroyed.(Again)
